Report: Gore to visit with Lions this week
INDIANAPOLIS, IN - DECEMBER 14: Frank Gore #23 of the Indianapolis Colts runs with the ball against the Denver Broncos during the first half at Lucas Oil Stadium on December 14, 2017 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Frank Gore will visit with the Detroit Lions this week, NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports.

Gore was previously informed by the Indianapolis Colts that they would not retain him for the 2018 season, allowing him to test free agency.

The veteran running back rushed for 961 yards and three touchdowns in 2017, adding 29 receptions for 245 yards and another touchdown across 16 games.

Gore, a five-time Pro Bowler, ranks fifth all time with 14,026 career rushing yards, making him the NFL's active leader. It's likely he'll pass Curtis Martin (14,101) for fourth place during the upcoming season.

If Gore does sign with the Lions, he would compete with runners Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick for touches out of the backfield.

Joe Thomas pushes for own annual holiday in Cleveland
I’d like to lobby @CityofCleveland to make 7/3 an official holiday where the city government is closed, banks are closed, mandatory day off for all workers. It only make sense to roll into America’s birthday with a little pre-game holiday for all on the 3rd. Retweet if you agree
Gronk angling to play for the '69ers'
I think Rob Gronkowski just crashed my bachelor party in disguise. Not sure if he's going to retire, but said he could be playing for the "69ers" next season. I love my job. I love Gronk. #Patriots
